From the desk of Bishop Webb: Commission on a Way Forward Update
July 9, 2018 / By Bishop Mark J. Webb
Editor's Note: On Monday July 9, Upper New York Area Resident Bishop Mark J. Webb sent the following letter to the Upper New York Conference informing them of some changes to take place regarding the release of the Commission on a Way Forward report.
I learned this weekend that the Commission on a Way Forward report would not be released on July 8th as communicated by the Council of Bishops after our May meeting. The final report has been submitted to the Commission on General Conference, but the translation work is still in process.
It is my understanding that a revised timeline of the completion of the translations will be coming from the Commission on General Conference soon. It is important that the whole church receive this report at the same time. May we continue to pray for our delegation, each delegate who will participate in the special session of General Conference, and The United Methodist Church.
Mark J. Webb
